Iowa is having a huge struggle against Purdue at Kinnick on Saturday.

The second-ranked Hawkeyes were down 17-7 in the third quarter and appeared to be headed to a deeper deficit.

Aidan O’Connell found TJ Sheffield on third-and-goal from the Iowa 6.

The receiver reached for the goal line and the official signaled touchdown.

However, before the PAT the dreaded buzz from upstairs for a review.

Upon that review, it was ruled Sheffield not only didn’t reach the pylon but he failed to control and ball and that went out of bounds in the end zone.

Instead of a Purdue touchdown, it was Iowa ball.

The Hawkeyes were unable to do anything and their undefeated season was in jeopardy heading into the final 15 minutes.
